Thomas Brush’s poems have appeared in Poetry, Prairie Schooner, Iowa Review, North American Review, and many journals and anthologies, and he has received fellowships from the National Endowment for the Arts, the Washington Artist Trust, and the Washington State Arts Commission. He lives in Seattle, Washington.
The poems in Last Night are drawn from the lost who walk the streets, from discarded road signs and postcards, the natural world, memory, whimsy, and vision. They are peopled by every imaginable sort of character, all of them making a hard, last ditch gamble on the thing, or the person, they love or can’t live without. This is gritty, tough, wonderful, compassionate work, the language as direct and clear as anything in American poetry today.”
